Honda's hardest working ATV is popular with both commercial fleet buyers and recreational riders who are looking for a basic, yet capable, machine. The TRX500 Foreman has all the componentry needed to get the job done or tackle the toughest trails without the luxury features that drive up cost and complexity. The durable steel chassis is just as well thought-out with oversized steel racks front and rear that offer multiple tie down options for maximum load versatility. Tough as it is, the TRX500 Foreman is surprisingly comfortable with adjustable, long travel-suspension at both ends and a broad plush seat for long days in the saddle.
Rear brake is located inside the right rear wheel for improved durability and increased ground clearance.
Powerful liquid-cooled, 475 cc single-cylinder OHV four-stroke engine is longitudinally mounted allowing direct driveshaft alignment to both front and rear wheels for maximum drivetrain efficiency.
Programmed Fuel Injection (PGM-FI) system improves power delivery and throttle response, and increases fuel efficiency extending range.
2WD/4WD system offers three drive modes: 2WD; 4WD with torque-sensing front differential; and 4WD with locked front differential to optimize traction. The system also features a Speed Override mode that can be engaged when the front differential is locked, which allows increased wheel speed under severe conditions such as deep mud.
